LG Begins Flexible OLED Display Mass Production In July
LG Display had the following to report - it's bringing "true flexible" Plastic-OLED screens to the masses this July! But wait, don't we already have these? Yes, the LG G Flex 2 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge are very much a reality, but it turns out bendable displays have ways to go from there! Current flexible OLED screens still have a layer of very thin glass on them, which limits their bending abilities to a 2.95in (75mm) radius. But LG's latest achievements have led to agile screens made entirely of plastic, allowing for almost double the bending radius - 1.18in (30mm).
The new displays are shatter-proof as well. Their imaging parameters are 60lm/W efficiency, 75lm (807 nits) peak brightness output, 3000K in color temperature, and CRI over 85. That doesn't sound too reassuring for color accuracy, but we will see where LG will take its new technology.
Hard to make any assumptions, but we have to say, LG has made a name for experimenting with its devices, and we're pretty sure it will put its displays to very good use.
